Mothers Day

The boys gave me a rose scented bath-bomb & some loveheart chocolates (Climber; spent his whole $6) and some rose hand-cream (Cherub, spent some of his $6 and went to the canteen with his change). Both boys are to be congratulated for choosing well and not buying anything that said World's Best Mum on it.

There was no sleeping-in or eating breakfast in bed. Instead we hauled ourselves to the soccer ground by 8.15am ready for the 9am kick-off, only to watch poor Climber's team get massacred by some formidable opponents.

At half-time, with the score 7-nil to the opposition, Climber was handed the goalie's shirt and gloves, surely the worst position on field when the other team is killing you.


But he surprised us by playing a corking game in goal, doing save after save. At the end of the match the score was 9-nil, and Climber walked off to the congratulations of his team-mates, asking please could we buy him some goalkeepers gloves of his own.


Then we came home and I had a bath and a nap, while the human males amused themselves and Basil-cat curled up next to me, delighted to have someone with whom to share the serious business of the Afternoon Sleep.


  1. Sounds little similar to ours. Hauling ourselves to the 8am startup for BBQ fundraiser at a certain hardware store. Still, I did get the cooked breakfast and nap later on.

    Go Climber! That is seriously good saving he did.

  2. Happy mother's day to you!

    I think you probably would have deserved the cup with "World's Best Mum" written on it, but happy for you it wasn't one of your gift options.

    Glad you had a good day! :)

  3. Getting your own gloves is a serious step. I can only imagine how seriously he took the job.

    Glad you were able to indulge in a long,warm, scented bath.

  4. I agree (as usual) with Aunty Evil.

    Way to go Climber! I'm not surprised. He's the kind of kid who steps up to a challenge. Nicely done.

    Happy Mother's Day!

  5. Oh yeah, and I forgot to comment on how much Climber is looking like you these days! :)

  6. Guess who did get a World's Best Mum cup?

    Yay me!

    Climber well done!

  7. Apart from the early sporty bit, it sounded rather nice.. the sleep the cat.. What more could a girl want!


Don't let the cat get your tongue.
